    Please read the note from our friends in legal before using this file.


    This program can do anything you ever wanted to do with pop-up news messages for your network users.

    Now includes a mbc-config file to configure the ini files.

    No nagging screens --just HTML pages, created by the supervisor. Expiration date is set per file and the user can decide to have the message display again or delete it. Includes print and history functions.

    Small, fast and simple. Totally customizable - interface, text and icons can be changed, and it's all totally free!

    MSVBVM50.DLL required.

    Run it from your loginscript. Make sure the user has a 'home dir' defined.

    For further instructions, please refer to the included mbc_v331.pdf file.

    Changes with Version 3.6
